Brentano’s Symphonic collection includes a well-priced, suede alternative called Maestro and a lively upholstery called Polka.

Woven from 100% high energy-dyed polyester, the lively Polka is a small-scale, geometric pattern that is bleach cleanable, and has both a Nano-Tex and DuraBlock finish. This 54” upholstery comes in 8 colors and passes 50,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).

On the other hand, Maestro is more subdued. A 100% poyester chenille with a Teflon finish creates a matte texture that gives a soft, suede-like effect. Maestro comes in 9 colors, measures 56” and has a wearability of over 75,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek). Thanks to the Teflon finish, Maestro also has increased stain resistance.

About the manufacturer: Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house. Brentano’s fabrics stem from Wang’s philosophy of balancing beauty + performance. Their growing collection of eco-fabrics expands this ideology by demanding textiles meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty. Having celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2010, Brentano continues to offer a variety of innovative and interesting textiles, including eco-friendly faux leather, high performance upholstery, fire-resistant, outdoor, Crypton, Nano-Tex and GreenShield fabrics.
